Carter Lake Sailing Club will again provide three fun filled weekends for youth to learn to sail on beautiful and clean Carter Lake Reservoir. Youths from 10 to 16 year of age will have the opportunity to sail sunfish and learn to maneuver around the lake. Sailing is a wonderful sport, and they may discover a love for sailing that can last a lifetime!
Sessions will be held from 10am to 4pm on the following weekends:
June 28 & 29
July 12 & 13
July 26 & 27
Costs include $85 per weekend, plus a one time materials fee of $25 for books and t-shirts. Register now at the CLSC website: www.sailcarter.org
The first two weekends will be for beginner/intermediate sailors, and will focus on basic sailing skills such as points of sailing, parts of the boat & sail, weather awareness, care of the boat, and understanding sail trim enough to successfully pilot the boat.
The third weekend will be open to those who have attended either or both of the first two sessions. More advanced skills will be taught and races will be held, with participation certificates for all.
The junior sailing program is run entirely by volunteers who love to sail and hope to pass on their passion for the sport to another generation. Our junior sail camps are fun, safe, and provide the opportunity for individual accomplishment as well as promoting teamwork. It is a great way for kids to spend a part of their summer.
